Cut a dashing figure in the cold with this dramatically striped poncho or wrap and smile to yourself for keeping warm and snug at the same time—you won’t catch cold wearing this stylish piece! Knit in a luxury sport or DK blend, it is light enough to toss on top of a coat and has a luxurious hand, but captures warmth like nobody’s business.
Constructed in strips of a bold cable motif that is a snap to knit, it’s a wonderfully portable and relaxing project. Plus, it’s completely reversible; one side looks exactly like the other—in fact, the strips can be joined into a terrific lap blanket if desired. The length is easily adjusted to suit different yardages or varying yarn weights.
